This December sees the release of Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch graphic novel – written by New York Times best-selling author, Aaron Dembski-Bowden (The Horus Heresy: The First Heretic), with art by Tazio Bettin (Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron).
Titan’s Deathwatch graphic novel is based on the best-selling standalone Games Workshop boardgame. As well as inspiring dozens of Black Library novels, the Deathwatch property has found success in other mediums including a new PS4 videogame (released in 2017), and Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion, a turn-based strategy videogame, available on iOS and Steam.
Based on the popular Warhammer franchise, the Deathwatch stands guard as the last line of defense at the edge of the universe, defending Mankind from inhuman horrors!
The Deathwatch is made up of the best of all Space Marines, recruited from across all Chapters to serve as the last resort against the multiple hostile alien civilizations threatening humanity. To be chosen to serve in the Deathwatch is a great honor granted only to the most elite and experienced veterans, but the specifics of their sacred duty must remain secret!
Stranded and alone at the edge of the Calaphrax Cluster, one Deathwatch kill-team must hold the line against the xenos hordes that threaten to destroy humanity. Assailed on all sides, they alone have the strength of mind and body to act as humanity’s first, and only, line of defense!
